I have a 08 diesel sxt model which i parked up ( no problems ) until I went to start in the next day or two which it refused to start.. The motor would turn over but that was it . It has clocked up 106,000 mls , so I checked with my scanner and it came up with the codes P0201 $07E8 CYLINDER ONE and P0204 $07E8 CYLINDER 4 . So I've put in new injectors and glow plugs because of the mileage which it has done . I had a mechanic check out the wiring from the injectors and glow plugs , all was ok on the connectors . He checked fuel was getting through all ok . I replaced with a new battery just in case. He suggests it should be checked out with an Auto Electrician ?? Is there anybody out there that can pinpoint the problem , if so would be greatly appreciated
regards

has it got any other electrical issues, ANY ?
check the ground point under the battery tray (on the inner chassis leg) there is a large amount of ground cables and the mounting stud is normally corroded, not sure it is the cause of your issue but it could be,

also check underneath the TIPM, there could be a harness which is rubbing on part of the vehicles metalwork,

You could have a bad starter but I would have to hear it or and I doubt this it could be compression but that is a severe worse case scenario cause I've seen diesels not start cause of compression

so if you clear the codes (get a cheap bluetooth odb2 reader and the torque android app), it re-appears w/the same codes or no?

You sure the fuel pump is running?

Try:

Compression test it then if that isn't it maybe you just got bad fuel

Ok thanks for that info , i'll check into it and let you know. Im going to double check the fuel relay in the TIMP just in case .
In reading up on it you can get a fuse bypass cable to check if it is working or not

normaly you can hear the fuel pump running for about 10 seconds, as soon as you turn the ignition key to the ON position,
